Subject: Nice to meet you Mr. Regional Manager
Great grandstanding production of what Firestone did to celebrate it's 50th anniversary. Thought it was going to be more of a historical overview, but NO! It's more like the Firestone boys giving speeches about their dad, slapping hands with regional managers, having historical displays with bored people not really looking at anything... and the circus! The glorious glorious circus. Bring in the disadvantaged children! God bless America! Reccomended!
